Liz and Alex, I am so so sorry! Shirley was the most wonderful person I have ever met, and a wonderful friend to me. We began our friendship at West, and she helped me thru many years. We stayed in touch after leaving West, but not as often as I should have though. I am so sorry for your loss, Shirley is loved by many and will be deeply missed!

To Shirley's family, My sincerest condolences in the passing of Shirley. She was the greatest neighbor - was always friendly and smiling. She encouraged me so much when I was looking for a part-time job almost a year and a half ago. She was looking at the time, too, but later decided to take life easy and enjoy it as much as she could. I don't know how long Shirley was sick, but she never mentioned it. I am not able to attend the visitation this morning but look forward to possibly attending a "Celebration of Life" at a later time.
